Sanders is an extremely friendly boy that has never met a stranger. He sings of his sorrows while locking eyes with his new friend at their every departure. He recovers from his sorrows quickly but he will look for his friends at the exact spot he previously met them in hopes of seeing them again. In addition to being a fierce friend, Sanders is exceptionally intelligent. He learned how to walk gently on a leash within a few minutes, and while he's a curious fellow, he will ignore squirrel, dog, and cat temptations with ease. He knows how to sit on command in nearly every situation despite many distractions. He understands that "No, sir" means that he should stop whatever he's doing and return to his foster mom. He is crate trained and will only cry for a few moments if he can't see his temporary human. A simple "No, sir" will correct the behavior. He sleeps soundly through the night and is fully potty trained. He is not overly fond of being told to go in his kennel but he will voluntarily go in it for nap time. Sanders will lay down while you open his kennel door but as soon as it's opened, he'll shoot out like a rocket. He just gets very excited to go find all of his toys. He enjoys picking up each toy in rapid succession until he's satisfied that they are all still chewable. He seems to only chew on dog toys (and pet beds) but steers clear of all of the human's possessions. He figured out how to dig through the baskets of toys in no-time flat. Sanders wants to meet his kitty foster sister but she's a very angry cat so he's a little scared of her. He plays well with his foster sister, a spoiled Rottweiler, and he follows her lead for a bit but does not engage in trivial matters such as grumbling at passersby that get too close to the lawn. He, instead, typically opts to find a tennis ball and carry it around. He's quite good at entertaining himself with toys and does not require any participation from dogs or humans. I can't say he loves bath time but he tolerates it well enough to still be considered a very good boy. Sanders is a huge fan of doors. He's never a met a door that he isn't insanely excited to walk through, even if it's a closet or a bathroom door. He will sit and wait for his temporary human to open the door but you can tell he's more than ready for the adventures awaiting him behind that particular door. He enjoys all treats including carrots, lemongrass (stolen from the garden), and a pumpkin-peanut butter mixture he gets stuffed in a Kong at bedtime. Sanders sometimes jumps on humans, especially when he's very excited. His foster mom is currently working with him on the jumping issue and has very high hopes that he'll learn quickly. All-in-all, Sanders is a very good boy that would love a home that can provide a fluffy bed, daily walks, and an excessive amount of toys.
